Speaking of Shakespeare
At THE NATIONAL ARTS CLUB
Upcoming Programs to Feature Actors
Henry Goodman, Simon Russell Beale, and Roger Rees
Over the last several months, The Shakespeare Guild and The National
Arts Club have co-hosted engaging conversations with such fascinating
personalities as actors F. Murray Abraham, Zoe Caldwell, and Bill Irwin,
and Theatre Communications Group executive Ben Cameron. We're now
pleased to announce our schedule for the next three programs in a series
that provides perspectives on a wide range of issues.
Each of these events will occur at 8:00 p.m. at The National Arts Club,
15 Gramercy Park South in New York City. The format is quite simple: a
chat that begins with Guild president John F. Andrews and his guest,
and then opens up to questions from the audience. The festivities
conclude with a light reception in the Club's beautiful lounge. To
inquire about dinner reservations, or to ask for further details, call
the National Arts Club at (212) 475-3424, or reply to this announcement
with a brief message to The Shakespeare Guild.
These programs are free of charge to members of the Guild or the NAC.
For non-members there is a $10 admission fee, can be paid, if you wish,
with a credit card.
